the obama campaign is saying and what the romney campaign is not. >> a favorite talking point of the obama campaign is mitt romney's economic proposals would simply reinstate the tax cut and deregulation policy that led to the 2008 financial meltdown. two things should be said about this claim. one is it's gone unanswered by the romney camp and the second is it's utterly invalid. the tax cut put in place under president bush in 2001 and 2003 cannot be blamed for the mortgage market collapse that triggered the great recession. in fact, they can be credited with helping the economy out of the recession of 2001, 2002, and with helping overcome the economic damage from hurricane katrina. by the way, that expansion, and the tax revenue it produced were sufficient to drive down the federal budget deficit for 2005 through 2007. this despite massive war spending. as for deregulation, president obama himself said former president bush put more regulations in place than he has at the same time frame. it is true that there is one bit of deregulation regularly blamed by the liberal economists for help
. patti ann: talk about that so-called debate bounce that romney got. looking back historically, when a candidate is perceived to have won a debate, how long does that bounce last? >> there has not really been any record of an event like the debate we had last wednesday night. four years ago there was absolutely no debate bounce. eight years ago very modest because we haven't seen a challenger win so decisively. we do know most bounces in and of themselves last less than a week in today's 24, 7 news environment. patti ann: we'll see what happens after the upcoming vice-presidential debate and beyond. >> it will be interesting. patti ann: yeah, that's for sure. thank you as always for joining us with the very latest numberss. bill: he was telling us last week to wait until monday morn. very interesting how that develops. >>> the break in a case of a missing 10-year-old girl. jessica ridgeway is her name. police say jessica was last seen on friday morning walking to school and then she vanished. police extended their search into the town of superior, colorado. that is a bit north of den
you, doug. it's time for a look at whose talking. brit hume is getting reaction to mitt romney's foreign policy speech and the recent situation in libya. >> if you see more on the president's policies saying what used to be a strength of the president may now in fact be his weakness. >> it's a big part of the president's job to manage foreign policy. it was something that looked to be a real plus for this president because of the death -- the killing of osama bin laden which he ordered and gets credit for. now it begins to look as if his policy toward the mid eels which he made a great to do about upon taking august and before is in bad shape. it looks like this was a major intelligence and security failure in libya. it looks also at least there's a possibility out there there may have been a major cover up on what may have happened. not only was it bumbled but the administration knew almost immediately that terrorism was implicated and proceeded to go forward. >>> well former tennessee senator also talking this morning giving his relacks to the -- reaction to the presidential
mitt romney rather than talking about his own record. and biden's weird performance was kind of a piece of that technique that they have adopted. i think voters are looking for something deeper from the president now. the burden is on him to show it next week. >> no hint of a second term agenda in biden's -- >> no, not at all. i think he showed president obama that you can be aggressive, you can defend. >> so romney ought to be on notice, he's coming at you? >> right. >> but he also showed us how not to be aggressive at the same time. and one of the dangers is, i got the impression from the last presidential debate that romney was holding back a little bit. that he was really -- >> really? >> that he was a little nice, he left a few zingers on the table because he was dominating. >> but obama is such a cooler customer than biden. biden is all heat and energy and attack. obama is laid-back. i mean, can he really go on the attack like biden? >> i think he can, but i think the danger is he opens the door for romney to be more aggressive in his responses, and i think gov. romney will be mor
republicans. mitt romney is a strong leader who stood up and talked against the talking point, one of the favorite ones that steve israel has, how republicans want to sendions overseas. mitt romney said i have been in business 40 years, vinever seen a tax advantage. that's an advantage to us when you have experience at the top of the ticket of building jobs, jobs creation and a chance to turn this country around. i believe in paul ryan and mitt romney. and i think steve israel will find out that republicans hold the house quite soundly, defeating democrats. >> shannon: we will find out, one month from today. thank you for your time today. >> you bet. >> reporter: >> shannon: pastors across the country are sounding off on moral, social and political issues today, part of pulpit freedom sunday. it could be coming to a church near you. we will talk about it and wais at stake, right after the break.

. this is something the romney campaign likes to talk a lot about. reviews generally believe if this vice president joe biden made a mistake last night it was all he framed the administration's response to attacks on libya. this will be revisited that night. jamie: and even before. bill: each party as you can imagine naming their candidates the winner today. the republicans say ryan maintained the upper hand and withstood the biden barrage. here is kentucky senator rand paul. >> i think the president loses some points at least skaoeul lisleast style list likely looking like a cheshire cat back there. >> did romney compete. >> we have massive unemployment? what is the administration doing, what they are doing is not working, what are they going to do differently? >> the obama campaign is cheering joe biden per performance saying he laid out a clear vision for our future. >> in terms of style, joe biden is joe biden. he's authentic and real and straightforward and says what he thinks and what he means and he spoke from a lifetime of experience. and congressman ryan basically spoke that the cue cards
on the side line or will switch over to mitt romney in this election. traveling across pennsylvania i have talked to a lot of people, democrats and independents and republicans would last time votes for president obama and they have said they are not voting for president obama this time and they believe we need a change in washington. >>neil: you have proven at state level and i am not blowing out you smoke but i am intrigued by what you have done. this can be done. it is do-able. simplify the tax code. make it more friendly to business and individuals. you can do that. it is tough but you can do it. right? >>guest: you can do it if you have the discipline and the fiscal discipline for the state. i believe you can't spend more than you receive in revenues to the state. we are not washington, dc. we don't print money. we don't continue to add to the debt in that respect. we have to control our spending. the spending prior to me getting here had increased from $22 billion to almost $29 billion. we have reduced it by $2 billion. some of the money in the last budget before i took office was ba
the president and governor romney on russia we want to talk more where we're going. here is how the candidates talk about russia if you will. we're going to roll some sound. >> but he is eager to give russia's president putin the flexibility he desires after the election. [booing] under my administration our friend will see more loyalty and mr. putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone. >> after all you don't call russia our number one enemy, not al qaeda, russia, unless you're still stuck in a cold war mind warp. [applause] jenna: so two very different perspectives. how should a new administration, whoever has it, engage russia in the next coming years? >> well, first of all you can't help but note both the candidates were pretty good at attack the other for probably the most inelegant and inopportune thing either one said on the subject. at one time governor romney did exaggerate calling russia our number one geostrategic foe. i don't see the argument for that. i also think president obama made the mistake with that open mic mistake back in korea earlier this year when he di
tonight. mitt romney versus the kids. that is the sum of this evening's talking points memo. what i am about to tell you is very hard to believe, but every word of it's true. yesterday mitt romney was campaigning in virginia when he saw a group of children we'ving at him from the side of the road. the governor ordered his caravan to stop so he could greet the kids and talk with them, a nice thing to do. here is the photo the associated press took at the meet and greet. a foolish shot that makes romney the butt of stupid jokes. pardon the pun. the picture was taken by photographer evan vucci and never been published. the governor doesn't know there is a child behind him. this is a cheap shot, literally. accompanying the photograph was an article by a.p. reporter lynn elber that chided him for not participate not guilty a nickelodeon special called kids pick the president. a program will be hosted by linda ellerby, a committed leftist and president obama has agreed to appear on it. governor says he passed because the scheduling, but he well knows that she and her crew are devoted obama s
romney is someone who has a commitment to being pro life and he doesn't talk about it a lot and when he does he doesn't do it as compellingly as he does on other issues but he has not backed away. when he has not been particularly clear as he was the other day in iowa, he comes forward and made a statement, i have not changed anything. this is where i was. this is where i am. this is where i'll be. it is a matter in the case of governor romney, where his passion is. his passion as a candidate, it is to turn the economy around and his passion is to shrink the size of government. he made the compelling case in the debate and did an excellent job. >>neil: is it your feeling, senator, that the economy is going the president's way? many of course have doubts about the reliability of the government data lately but having said that, it such that the obama folks can say, well, the trend is our friend and the republicans can whine about the economy but it is getting better and it is making mitt romney fight harder. >> when you pump tens and hundreds of millions of what the fed is doing to prop u
blaming governor romney for turning tragedy into politics. >> we're here in a debate. and i hope we get to talk about the debate. the eastbound entire reason this has become the political topic it is because of mitt romney and paul ryan. it's a big part of the stump speech. it's reckless and irresponsible. >> the romney campaign says the obama campaign is wrong. in a statement the campaign said the reason it is an issue because for the first time since 1979 an american ambassador was assassinated and president obama's strategy is failing. former senior advisor to president reagan joins us. your thoughts about what stephanie cutter said? >> i think it's nonsense. this was the worst terrorist attack since september 11th. gangs of dozens of men with ak 47s and rocket propelled grenades and mortarred attacked and murdered ambassador, then a safe house, some guys got away and reported it that night. it may have been in realtime. this was a terrorist attack. and t ambassador is dead. and then, to have five days later our un ambassador say on five stations that this was a spontaneous attack th
: that heightens the pressure on mitt romney for the second debate? >>guest: when you talk about unprecedented, this first debate was an inflection point. what made it amazing from statistics you see fluctuation in polling data when the undecided is high like in the presidential primary. you have undecided at 20 percent or 25 percent and people do not know the candidates yet. here the undecided was seven. in high single digits. so you saw a big swing not only in some of the swing states but in the national polls, a dramatic swing, with a low undecided. that is what makes this an unprecedented move. >>neil: it must speak to the possibility, the possibility, that the president's support or a good many other supporters are not as strong or in his column as he thinks. given an appealing alternate they could and indeed will switch. what do you think? >>guest: that is the key. an aping alternate. right now, the national voter pie has, the approval rating of president obama at 47 percent or 48 percent is close enough to make a difference especially in the key states. what mitt romney has done is he h
blown his job. he did his job. romney did not tell the truth. he should have called him out on it. >> kimberly: listen to this. this is talking about the race. places like north carolina, virginia, we've painted them red. not pulling those states again. focus on remain states. >> florida, north carolina and virginia will go to romney? >> that's right. we look at the polling data in florida and virginia and north carolina. >> kimberly: a liberal pollster saying it's a lock for romney. >> bob: i suggest he go back to polling school. i know this guy, he is a decent pollster. but to suggest that you write off three states. north carolina make sense. florida, probably getting close. no way you can call virginia. obama is ahead in virginia. 60% of the vote in virginia. all democratic. i don't believe it for a second that's right. >> kimberly: okay. that is your opinion. thank you for participating. tomorrow fox has coverage of the vice presidential debate. i'm going to kentucky for kentucky fried chicken and give you a preview in person of the fantastic debate. >> greg: where are you st
said six times, he talked about the youtube video. now they're trying to blame the ryan-romney ticket for making this an issue. >> steve: of course, that's what they were talk being yesterday. so who won? cnn and cnbc did polls and mr. ryan was on top. cbs had one with some focus group. they felt that the vice president won. peggy nuland writes fort second time in two weeks, the democrat came out and defeated himself. in both cases, the republican was strong and the democrat somewhat disturbing. another way to say it is the old man tried it patronize the kid and the kid stood his ground. the old man pushed and the kid pushed back. >> brian: she did not mean that complimentary. >> gretchen: i actually think had is a debate that's going to percolate over a couple of days. when people go back and read and maybe see video and see this reaction, i think it may percolate over time where people will maybe change their opinion of exactly how it went. >> brian: it was -- >> gretchen: i think a lot of people -- i think it rubbed them the wrong way with the attitude. the headlines now. one month
and the surrogates trying to paint the war on women, republicans are spear heading. mitt romney came out and was legitimately who he is. he didn't talk about the draconian cut. he played his role as a good manager, fixer. i think he was very likable and very rel spentful to the -- respectful to the president. a lot of women said wait a minute, he's not the monster that they said he was. that number is big for the romney campaign. >> dana: brian, when you look at these, if you look at ohio this morning, the poll that came out showing that romney is in a slight lead, which he has not been in ohio. do you think it's real? buenos aires >> brian: amazing a week ago they said take resources out of ohio and find another path to 270, which was highly unlikely. do i think it's real? anyone who criticizes the polls a week ago cannot embrace them this week because they may be more favorable. i'd say think. thought they nailed it today when they said this will be the election where the polls are going to be sidelined, as importance. i will say this, they show a trend. on top of all of, this i think
in the shows. we will talk to experts on that debate performance. >> meanwhile mitt romney and paul ryan both in the all important swing state of ohio today. but president obama off the trail. he is hunkering down in virginia preparing for round 26 the debates. hoping to avoid another bad performance against romney. peter doocy live in d.c. with more. looking ahead to this town hall on tuesday. should be fun. >> it should be fun. and, dave, president obama admitted this week he had a bad night at the first debate and the general consensus was that he lost round one. but round 2 is on tuesday night and the president is taking steps to make sure he improves later on this afternoon. is he going to fly on down to williamsburg, virginia, about 150 miles away from the white house to get ready for that town hall style debate. is he going to be hidden from the public eye. he doesn't have any scheduled rallies or events today. 's not like he is finished campaigning because last night he did grab dinner are some contest winners in d.c. the pictures of that dinner were blasted out online last night. as
's essentially a tie right now. the data is so close. but romney was behind by a field goal, now he's kicked a field goal and we have a tie race going into the final weeks. >> what voter groups have moved in the last three weeks? are you talking about independents, are you talking about specific demographic groups? who has moved? >> well, one group that hasn't moved are the strong partisans. democrats and republicans who turn out are going to vote for their own nominee. the key statistic to watch with the partisans is enthusiasm. and the presidential debate clearly help the republican enthusiasm and hurt the democratic enthusiasm. on the other hand, the group to watch as far as the ballot test goes are the independents because they are much less lock into their particular pref presence at -- preference at the moment. your own poll showed that in virginia, according to wall street journal poll, independents moved a net seven points toward romney after the debate, and in ohio independents moved a net twelve points toward romney after the debate. those are big swings among independents, and it'
can turn his wonkiness, his mastery of numbers into something like mitt romney in the first debate to empathy and personalize it. bill: everybody is on record what they expect. you talk about the expectations. everybody lowballs the stuff including to the president to a degree. here is what he said on abc with diane sawyer. >> i think joe needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker but his ideas are the wrong ones. bill: hang onto that word ideas because it will come up a lot tonight. we have not seen joe biden in six days. >> yeah. six days off the campaign trail because he is studying. he is cramming. he is doing debate prep. that is quite something. you know, in the wake of the president's debate, first debate with mitt romney, there has been this back and forth. we've heard just bits and pieces of this debate performance between joe biden and his debate sparring partner which is congressman chris van hollen from maryland, who is by the way the ranking member of the house budget committee and knows paul ryan very well. but he has been doing a lot of practi
'm not here to give you obama talking points. >> bill: no, no. we're interested in you and what you think. last question, if the president loses to mitt romney because you're a massachusetts guy, he was the governor of the state. >> indeed. >> bill: are -- >> i know mitt romney. i met him. very nice guy. >> bill: you're not going to move out of the country or something? you be all right? >> i hope not. i think president obama is in good shape. i would put money on president obama? >> bill: how much money you want to put on it?
